The French, synonymous with good taste and quality, have developed an all-natural sweetener that has none of the aftertaste and fits perfectly into your handbag.
Richard Henry Consulting Ltd are excited to introduce La Maison Du Stevia to the UK, a high grade sweetener which is 100% plant-based and gently extracted using water methods. After years of development in France, the EU has given Stevia the go-ahead as the natural alternative to sugar. No chemicals, no aspartame. No aftertaste. All-natural.
Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni and its extract Rebaudioside A, is the name given to a plant native to South America whose leaves derive a natural sweetener 300 times sweeter than sucrose. Unlike other products on the market which are bonded chemically in China, the extract for La Maison Du Stevia is gently extracted in France using water methods, giving you a high-quality graded sweetness.
The extract offers a sweetness that is calorie-free and with a glycemic index of zero making this the ideal go-to for those with diabetes or those who simply wish to reduce the amount of sugar in their daily diet.
In powder form, you don’t need much (just the tip of the spoon), as it’s 300 times sweeter than sucrose, so a little goes a long way.
A Healthy Kitchen
Stevia also comes in pocket-sized tablets and crystals, making it easy and convenient for adding to tea, coffee and smoothies and to all cooking and baking. Either one or two tablets can be added to drinks according to taste. Stevia also entirely replaces sugar in the preparation of soups, casseroles, jams, cakes and biscuits.
Look out for a raft of Stevia products soon to be released to include jams, jellies, chocolate and tea.
To kick off, they're offering Stevia in handy tablet form RRP £4.95. To up the sweetness in your life check out their online shop at www.steviasweeteners.co.uk or for general enquiries call 0161 798 0671.
